"We Live"

(by Superchick)

"There's a cross on the side of the road
Where a mother lost her son
How could she know that the morning he left
Would be the last time she'd trade with him for a little more time
(so she could say she loved him one last time)
And hold him tight
But with life we never know when we're coming up to the end of the road
So what do we do then
With tragedy around the bend

Chorus:
We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love
(Repeat)

There's a man who waits for the tests to
See if the cancer had spread yet
And now he asks why did I wait to live 'til it was time to die
If I could have the time back, how I'd live
Life is such a gift
So how does the story end?
Well, this is your story and it all depends
So don't let it become true
Get out and do what we were meant to do

Chorus

Waking up to another dark morning
People are mourning
The weather in life outside is storming
But what would it take for the clouds to break
For us to realize each day
Is a gift somehow, someway
And get our heads up out of this darkness
And spark this new mindset and start on with life cuz it ain't gone yet
And tragedy's a reminder to take off the blinders and wake up
(to live the life)
We're supposed to take up
(moving forward)
With all our heads up
Cuz life is worth living
Chorus..."

OK, so I added "iLike" for those of you who may not know the songs that I post. I'm not so computer literate, and my mister only has one good eye right now. He tried to help me read the code; but until he gets the plaque removed, he's not so helpful. Thanks to my wonderful step-sister Tiffany, I have come this far! I'm not sure why you can't play all of the songs, but I'm trying to make it work!! Please bear with me. I don't know if it's something I did wrong, or what. When I'm at the iLike website, I can play all of them... [Note added 10/25: I no longer have iLike on here, cuz my mister was able to help me do what I wanted to do all along]

Anyways, it's probably obvious why I posted this song! I really don't want to live my life focused on a terrible thing called "cancer". Right now, it is contained in his eye. I just need to rejoice in that & live life to the fullest. I want to make the most of each day & move forward with my head up. I want to seize each day, which I should have been doing before the diagnosis. I don't want to take the little things for granted.
